As politicians go low, faith can combat body shaming, new research finds. Do you consider yourself ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’?

Faith may play a powerful role in relation to the continuing widespread acceptance of body shaming in America, according to new research.

However, believers who consider the body to be basically sinful were more likely to be ashamed of their body.
